Licensed Real Estate Broker
Licensed as Barbara S. Fox

President, Fox Residential Group, Inc.

In 1989, Barbara Fox created Fox Residential Group as a boutique real estate firm specializing in the sale of upscale residential properties on Manhattan’s Upper East and West Sides. Barbara had previously established herself as one of New York’s prominent real estate brokers and managers, having created and led a residential division of over 60 brokers for the large commercial firm of Cross & Brown Company.

Beginning with five brokers, Fox Residential Group currently has over 30 brokers, assisting clients and customers in the purchase, sale, and rental of cooperative, condominium and rental apartments, townhouses and mansions throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn.

In 1988, Barbara was a founding member of the Residential Committee of the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY). In the years since, in addition to selling properties and running her company, she has been an active member of REBNY – chairing and serving on numerous committees and spearheading many projects and initiatives for the organization. Barbara sits on the Residential Board of Directors and has previously served on REBNY’s Board of Governors and the Residential Ethics Committee.

In 1997, Barbara was honored as the recipient of the Henry Forster Memorial Award for an outstanding record of lifetime achievement in residential real estate. In 2015, she received The Kenneth R. Gerrety Humanitarian Award from the Real Estate Board of New York, the industry trade organization.

From its inception 33 years ago, Barbara has served on, and in recent years, chaired the committee that oversees the residential industry’s main fundraising event, the Residential Deal of the Year Charity and Awards Gala. For many years, the funds raised supported charities serving the homeless of New York City; more recently, the beneficiary has been the REBNY Member in Need Fund, which assists residential members who have fallen on hard times.

Outside of REBNY, Barbara’s most significant service to the community has been as the founder and head of an animal rescue organization. WOOF Rescue annually saves over 100 homeless dogs and cats from being euthanized at New York City shelters, re-socializes each of them in foster homes, tends to their medical needs, and finds them permanent loving homes.

A native of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, Barbara resides on the Upper East Side of Manhattan with her husband, James Freund, a retired Skadden Arps senior partner, and their six rescue dogs.
